No fussy focusing: regardless of the size of your gel, all images are in focus. You will not need to constantly adjust the focus.

No positioning: no matter where you place the sample in the imager, the Azure 200 will capture it.

Automatic Imaging

Select the application and it will choose the light sources and filters for you. The Azure 200 can be easily upgraded at a later time to accommodate additional applications.

High-resolution Imaging

A 5.4MP camera provides high resolution imaging perfect for publications.

UV Imaging using Ethidium Bromide
With a dual-wavelength 302 nm and 365 nm UV transilluminator, images of ethidium bromide-stained DNA gels can be captured in a fraction of a second.
"Safe" Dye Detection

A less toxic alternative to ethidium bromide, less-harmful “Safe” dyes can be imaged with the EPI Blue LEDs standard in all the systems.

Blue Light Imaging. SYBR® Safe, SYBR® Gold, SYBR® Green. A less toxic alternative to ethidium bromide, less- harmful “Safe” dyes can be imaged with the EPI Blue LEDs standard in all the systems. Epi Blue is recommended as it delivers superior & uniform illumination with reduced background compared to transilluminated blue light.
Dynamic Range of 4.82 orders of magnitude

4.8 OD Dynamic Range

Intuitive capture software controlled by a wide touchscreen

The Azure 200 provides high-resolution imaging that is ideal for publication purposes, as well as higher pixel well cap for higher dynamic range.

Field Upgradable for More Light Sources

The flexibility of Azure Imaging Systems comes from the wide variety of light sources and filters to detect fluorescent dyes up to 832nm. The Azure 200 is upgradeable, for when your research needs evolve.
